  3. Install a Hot Tub. The right set-up will allow you to put in a hot tub safely. That is when the relaxing nights can start. You can come home from a crazy commute, slip on your suit, and jump in the hot tub for 15-20 minutes and let the stress of the day swirl away with the water jets.
  4. Play with Your Kids. Build memories when you take the game night out to the spa. Grab some waterproof cards or board games, some snacks, and let the giggles and bonding begin!

  7. Read/Relax/Do a Crossword. Spend an hour lounging around with a good book or crossword puzzle. Today’s busy world makes it hard to unplug and unwind. Your newly constructed deck eliminates the excuse of “no place to relax”.
